Our Story

WHO WE ARE

Zen + Ether is an eco-luxe beauty brand helping you add moments of relaxation to your everyday beauty routine. At Zen + Ether, we believe that beauty and wellness are intertwined. Our products strive to make you feel beautiful and whole from the inside out and is reflected in our mantra of “inner calm and outer glow”. Zen is a state of being centered, calm and at ease. Ether is the space surrounding us and represents our connectedness to people, the universe, light energy and the Divine. The two elements combined represent connecting inwardly and outwardly to achieve balance, relaxation and rejuvenation.

WHY WE CREATED ZEN + ETHER

Zen + Ether was created to help women incorporate stress management rituals into their everyday beauty routines. We are bombarded daily with stress from all facets of life, including work, family and relationships. Stress takes a toll on our emotional well-being, and on our skin in the form of premature aging, dullness and breakouts. For many women, finding time and ways to relax can be difficult. Our purpose is to create mindful beauty products so that women can easily and conveniently add relaxation to their everyday lives.

CHALLENGING THE APPROACH TO RELAXATION

We live in a world where we are made to believe that tiredness is a way of life that should be accepted. Sometimes we are even judged for feeling stressed. A mother raising her children is told that the stress and tiredness she faces “comes with the territory” and she should “just accept it for what it is”. A single, professional woman is told that “work must be stressful for her to advance in her career” or “she has nothing to stress about like moms do”. The truth is that no matter who you are or what your current life situation is, we all have some level of stress and could use some relaxation. Activities like going on a spa date, walking along a trail, listening to soothing music or taking a day off are good methods to de-stress and relax. However, we believe that relaxation shouldn’t be a one-time event. You shouldn’t have to schedule relaxation. To live a well-balanced life, relaxation should be intentionally incorporated into every aspect of our daily living.

SUSTAINABILITY

As a brand, we believe in preserving nature, which is our most natural source of relaxation. Without clean water, healthy forests and thriving wildlife, there will be no ocean sounds to soothe us or parks to experience tranquility. To reduce impacts to these resources, we take an eco-friendly approach to the way we package and manufacture our products. We only use recyclable and sustainable material such as glass, bamboo and recycled natural fibers in our packaging. We also use plantable paper, a zero-waste product, that produces wildflowers when planted and helps increase the Monarch butterfly population.
